Overview

Using the Okra widget, you can allow your customer to add up to 3 guarantors. After linking their account, an SMS and/or email will be sent to each designated guarantor, who will then complete the widget authentication process. This grants you access to the guarantors’ Identity KYC profiles, Balances at the time of connecting, and the ability to collect Payments on their accounts in the event that the main applicant defaults.

Verifying biometric identity via your widget is pretty simple. Just add selfie and any of the optional nodes to your widget options as below:

const options = {
        ... {other widget options} ... 
        guarantors: {
        status: true,
        number: 3
        }
}

When completed, the widget will display the flow below:
